A discussion we had over the weekend was how we'd like to be able to have all our alts together for a big group photo. What we came up with was taking a photo around the big table in our supergroup. Details are sketchy at this time but some thoughts we had:

-There would be seating arrangements at the table, so that two people are not in the same spot once the shot is photoshopped together.

-We have a lot of alts, and only so many seats, so only a certain number of alts per character would be allowed.

-The photoshopper would have a character in position in the base to take the picture, and they would not move. This would allow for easier picture editing.

-The super group needs a character who would be a "leader" of the group. Or maybe we don't have a leader but are rather some sort of democracy, or a combo of the two like the justice league?

I'm posting this for discussion and to get reactions. Currently we're only planning this on the Hero side. It seemed like a good use of the supergroup table and a good way to get all the characters together.

The table we have has 16 chairs, and we have 8 active players. Quick math gives us two characters per player at the table. You could also have an alt not at the table but in the background, though this will require more coordination to ensure there are no overlaps when the picture is put together.

For my characters I'd like to have Tokobauzsos and Arctic Hellfire at the table, and maybe Will-X somewhere in the background.

I like the idea, but how are we going to pull of having more than one alt out at once? Y'all will have to talk me through it so I can have Domnule Barbat and Dedao do pe seated at the same time.

What we'll do is have the cameraman stay logged in the whole time, facing the same view of the room. Then we'll choose seats for the characters and take multiple pictures in order to get every alt we want together. You'll sit in an assigned seat with one character, the picture will be taken, and then you'll log out and get your other character, who will sit in his (different) assigned seat, and also have that picture taken. The resulting pictures will be photoshopped together.

Cool, now I just need to decide who of ManRam, Gravvex, and Trassin will get to be in the picture.

You could have all three, but only two can be seated at the table. Anyone else will have to be fit in the background. Alternatively, if someone only has one character they want at the table, then that frees up a spot for another person.

I'll probably have ManRam in the background then, since his loyalties are to his people first before any group.
